Port Clinton – Kirsten Hill, elected member of the state board of education in district 2, provided a briefing on Critical Race Theory to the Ottawa County Republicans this evening during their annual Fish Fry event. She urged attendees to learn more and to share the information with a friend.
Sarah Fowler Arthur, State Representative in Ohio’s 99th district in Northeast Ohio, provided information about legislation that has been introduced in Columbus to stop the incorporation of critical race theory into Ohio school curriculums. She mentioned three bills, H.B. 322, H.B. 327 and H.B. 616. Fowler is the co-sponsor of H.B. 327 and spent the majority of her time outlining the main components of that bill.
Books which Rep. Fowler Arthur recommended are Dr. Carol Swain’s Black Eye for America and Fault Lines by Dr. Voodie Baucham, Jr. She said they are well-researched and comprehensive on the topic of Critical Race Theory.
To round out the evening program was Rev. C.L. Bryant of Florida. As a Senior Fellow with FreedomWorks, C.L. is a much sought-after speaker who travels the nation motivating people to wake up and recognize the attacks that are happening from within the U.S.A.
